You should never feel ashamed of “only” reading what you read
Today’s post is sponsored by self love and taking care of yourself.
Inspired by quite a lot of tweets and (not really) failed reading goals.
Do you feel like you should be reading way more books? Have you felt the crushing pressure of not reading enough? Then let me tell you some things-

BooksMethods to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

Well… the title pretty much sums it up.
These last 2 weeks I’ve been in a reading slump and it’s so irritating. I’ve started three books and finished none and I have a lot of other books that I want to read. They are from different genres and different media but I just, can’t bring myself to pick any of them up.
I think I need a bit of a break, and I have read over 30 books this year so it’s not like I’m falling behind or anything, I just feel like not reading for now. Which sucks because I love writing reviews for the books I read and telling you all about new ones I’ve acquired.
When I’m like this I find myself turning to really short fanfics to fill the void, since they are around 3,000 words and have simpler plots than whole novels. I already know the characters and it’s more easy to read since the style and format is way different. If you’d like to hear all about fanfiction just drop a comment and I will make a post about that.
No new books any time soon but I will keep writing posts, just don’t expect any updates on my reading until I’m through this slump.
If you have any tips on how to get out of a reading slump take this as an open invitation to comment
That said, I’m going to the International Book Fair in Buenos Aires soon so you will get updates focused on that (look forward to it, it’s gonna be awesome)
